    Hei, now I hope I am on the right Place zu show piktures of mein first Wabikusaball
    Its filled with Kokohum and a fertilizer.
    First Plant is a Cyperus helferibaby of my Motherpant
    Wabikusahelferi4.
    Then 4 Weeks later from the front
    Wabikusahelferi2.
    and from the back
    Wabikusahelferi3.
    The plants are
    Alternathera sessilis
    Cyperus helferi
    Lysimachia-nummularia-aurea
    Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides
    Taiwanmoos

    Its not perfekt, but a start. The ball is so heavy, that the dish is broken:( I want to repair it like Tiffanyglasart...We do it long time ago, but we have the things to prepair here...
    Viele Grüße Monika

    I prefer to look from the back, reasons being you can see the different height levels from lowest to the highest point in your planting.

    The lightest plants in the front and the darkest and tallest at the back.

    In my opinion from the back the plant looks far more interesting and worth admiring.

    With your presentation I would prefer a Black felt (as used in toy making) it can be called Toy Felt its a little thicker than the Felt used on a Billiard Table (which is green).

    I very roughly blocked it out to give you a good idea of what it would look like.

    One larger piece could be used at the back as well.

    thank you for your words and your help. I will look for a suitable cloth and try your tips to realize.
    Sorry that I neglected the background, for me, was the first Wabikusaball in the foreground. For other projects, I used a terry towel what one has actually every household at home in different colors.
    for example. when Rocherboxencontest

    Rocherboxokt22010.

    I forgot to mention the Poligonium Sao Paulo ... plant list from Wabikusaball
    The plants are
    Alternathera sessilis
    Poligonum sao paulo
    Cyperus helferi
    Lysimachia nummularia-aurea-
    Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides
    Taiwan moss

    Only too pleased to help you.

    What is the size of this one?

    If big enough I would love to see a few cold water shrimps in it (Check Roy out for that) to see what is available.

    I like what you have done, do you still have it?

    Here is a good photo of that Light House and buildings.

    Note how the photographer set it up "Not square on" this give a greater perspective and more appealing to admire.

    Place the Light House 1/3rd in from the left for a greater sight flow

    Trying to duplicate that is very difficult especially keeping every thing in perspective.

    My suggestions would be remove that rock it looks like a mountain in comparison.

    Make a slight rise to sit the Light House and buildings on.

    For the grassy area I would use a very low moss and keep it trimmed.

    Hei, no, I don´t still have it. Look at the Copyright of the pikture ;-)
    But the "hardscape" can stand anywere in a corner...I have to look...

    The other stand up in the staircase...but without care. If I want to, I can reactivate it...
    Cut the fern, clean the Sand and the Windows, pull the Riccia down, ready:D

    Can you buy in Winter Rocherboxen in England and Australia? If we on vacation in Kanada, wie are very surprised, that "Kraft", "Nestle"m "Ferrero" and so on are international äh global :D Now Ferrero has Summerbrake...

    In a few weeks, we will re-visit the westerhever during our holiday ... eat there a lamb sausage and are happy with its beautiful scenery ... ride a bicycle against the North wind, coming from St. Peter Ording (Germany's biggest sandbox I love;-) it ...

    Hei, the Plants of my first Wabikusa grow very nice and fast :)...
    If it is windy on the terrace, tilt the stem to.
    I think it's time for the first cut
    When cut you the first time the plants?
